A strong triumvirate is being formed between Project Hosts, ISVs and Microsoft

Project Hosts, Inc. is working together with Microsoft and ISVs to provide solutions in Azure that comply with information security regulations and deliver comprehensive and scalable SaaS platforms, while securing these solutions and responding to the growing trend of security breaches across large cloud deployments.

With Microsoft Azure’s growing popularity in cloud technology, government agencies, healthcare providers and payers, commercial enterprises as well as ISVs are excited about the opportunities Azure creates to transform their business. IT teams rely on cloud solution providers (CSPs) to implement tools, controls, policies and procedures to ensure that their deployments hosted in the cloud are secure and compliant. To support CSPs, Azure provides valuable services and tools including: Azure virtual networks, networks security groups, web application firewalls, active directory, VPN gateways, ADFS, MFA, OMS for log correlation and more. Where there are gaps, or when specific customers’ requirement it, CSPs use their own developed, or off the shelf tools to implement the various policies and procedures.

To assure that applications migrated to Azure are in good working order, IT professionals expect CSPs to implement the following on top of Azure:

1. Access Control
2. Identity & Authentication
3. Server Lockdown
4. Encryption In Transit, At Rest
5. Vulnerability Scanning
6. Patching & Updating
7. Test Environment
8. Change Management
9. Anti Malware & IDS/IPS
10. Event Logging & Alerting
11. Incident Response
12. Backup & DR With Testing
13. Cybersecurity Training
14. Third Party Audit

Project Hosts relies on Azure, which provides various information compliances including ISO 27001, HIPAA, HITRUST, GDPR, and FedRAMP, while leveraging their platform and infrastructure to create security envelopes to securely enable migration of applications, workloads, and SaaS solutions into Azure. This allows ISVs to continue to focus on developing and updating their software products and services to better address their clients’ needs.

Working hand-in-hand, Project Hosts, Microsoft and ISVs are coordinating their efforts and splitting tasks to accomplish successful service delivery outcomes. These tasks include, but are not limited to the following disciplines – data classification and accountability, end-point protection, identity and access management, application level controls, network controls, hosted security, and physical security.
